It's getting to be that time of year when networks roll out their Upfront presentations, shoring up existing series for next year, though ABC, for one, has yet to make many official announcements over its renewed series. Even will all the cancellations and renewals, however, many have begun to announce premiere dates for unpopular series to burn off their remaining episodes, so when can you check out the final episodes of 'Zero Hour,' '666 Park Avenue' and 'Do No Harm'? find out inside!
666 Park Avenue
Talk about kicking when they're down. Earlier this season we were disheartened, albeit not altogether surprised to hear that ABC decided not to renew freshman dramas '666 Park Avenue' and 'Last Resort' for additional episodes, but now '666 Park Avenue' fans have even more reason to fear. ABC has pulled the supernatural spook-fest from its Sunday scheduling altogether, slotting in 'Happy Endings' and 'Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23,' instead, but why? And when will '666 Park Avenue' return?
ABC hasn't had a tremendous amount of luck with the supernatural genre of late, but by gum, they're going to try again. Following the recent cancellation of '666 Park Avenue,' and the even-more-recent scrap of 'Weird Desk" based on thematic similarities to the upcoming 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' TV series, ABC's next effort will bring the dead back to life with 'The Returned.' The project, produced by Brad Pitt's Plan B Entertainment, is based on a novel by Jason Mott, but will ABC manage to make 'The Returned' stay?
Many were shocked, or - if nothing else - a little surprised when ABC opted not to move forward with additional episodes of buzz-worthy freshman dramas 'Last Resort' and '666 Park Avenue' last week, both of which opened to some acclaim but failed to perform in their difficult time slots. The abrupt cancellation also has fans wondering if the stories of either series will reach satisfying conclusions after only 13 episodes, but now both show-runners have gone on record indicating the cancelled shows will be tweaked to reflect a series finale. What changes can we expect?
Sheesh, talk about your Defcon 1. A submarine-sized hole just erupted in ABC's fall drama lineup, as the network has opted not to move forward with either buzzworthy fall drama 'Last Resort' or '666 Park Avenue,' effectively cancelling both series after their 13-episode orders. 'Last Resort' in particular had attracted quite a bit of critical attention, in spite of its sinking ratings, while '666 Park Avenue' had difficulty finding its place on Sunday nights. What could have caused the cancellations, and will any good news come of them?
It's good news for the ladies and moderately troubling news for the men, as FOX has extended an impressive amount of faith in its freshman comedy 'The Mindy Project, while ABC seems hesitant to get too deep in the water with either naval drama 'Last Resort,' or sexy supernatural thriller '666 Park Avenue.' All three have recieved additional orders from their respective networks, but who has reason to be worried about their first seasons?
We bet you're not tired of hearing about the Upfronts yet! With ABC's massive event currently under way, the network has issued out advance looks at ten of its upcoming series for the year, including country music drama 'Nashville,' urban spook-fest '666 Park Avenue,' and the naval drama 'Last Resort!' So between the new dramas and comedies for both fall and mid-season, what's worth your time? Read on to find out!
